I then went and finished her off. it blew the crap out of her nose but didnt get far enough.

And that is the main problem with Varmint bullets which are lighter for caliber than big game bullets as well as not as stoughtly constructed....

Re: 25-06 + ???? = Good Antelope round

Thanks for the replys all. It sounds like I was kinda thinking along the right lines, which is good to hear. I will pick up a box of the 115gr BT's first and see how those do, then try the 100gr BT's. Will likely finish out a box of 210 before trying the br-2's. Thanks again for your time and I'll let you all know how she turns out.

Re: 25-06 + ???? = Good Antelope round

yeah, but i have also seen a 55gr. bt out of a 243 go through the neck of a deer and then through his chest where it totally destroyed everything. I mean no heart no lungs, nothing. I dont use them for long range but for a normall deer up to 250-300yrds I have been very successfull except for the one. 1 out of 8-10 isnt bad.

Re: 25-06 + ???? = Good Antelope round

screech-

I have seen varmint bullets 55g in both 224" and .243" used with sucess on smaller bucks out to 300-400 yards, out of 22-250's, 220 swifts, and .243's. They give dramatic kills and 9 out of 10 times, they all dropped DRT. My sister uses her moms .243 which is loaded with 55g NBT's at 4100fps. They have done the job for her whenever she needed to get a deer!! I've never seen exits on these deer with these light varmint bullets, but the little bullets get into the chest and desintegrate everything, so the deer goes down pretty quick...

That is my point they are fantatic when they work and when they don't they are teriable in my experience the heavier hunting type bullets wont give the Spectauler effect of the super fast light varmint bullets,but will be more consistent in thier performance.........

Re: 25-06 + ???? = Good Antelope round

Antelope are very easy to kill. Just use which ever bullet shoots best in your 06 and place it through the ribs.

Then all you have to worry about is who you are going to give the disgusting meat away too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] and whos going to mount your trophy.

Good Luck
